Your favorite stars will answer the phone this Saturday at the live telethon “Lead with Love 2021” for Project Angel Food.
The telethon will support the continued production and distribution of life-saving meals at the record levels reached during the pandemic.
Hosts Eric McCormack and Jessica Holmes will be right in the middle of the action, while Loni Love and Alec Mapa keep the energy going while they take care of the board thermometer and help raise the donations!
Executive Director Richard Ayoub commented, “It’s like we’re bringing the band back together. Eric and Jessica hosted our first telethon last year. Eric originally didn’t want to be in town and I’m so glad he changed his plans; Loni is a huge supporter; and it’s a Project Angel Food homecoming for Alec. It will not get better.”
The Telethon will have special moments as celebrity chefs Cat Cora, Wolfgang Puck, Stuart O’Keeffe and Duff Goldman pay tribute to Project Angel Food Chef Randy Nakamura, who lost his life to COVID in January. “Extras” – owned by Rachel Lindsay – will give viewers a tour of the Angel Food kitchen.
LeAnn Rimes, Gloria Estefan and Olivia Holt will perform, and there will be appearances by Jamie Lee Curtis, Maria Shriver, Oscar De La Hoya, Yvette Nicole Brown and others. Viewers can talk to some of their favorite stars by calling the Celebrity Call Lounge. Criminal Minds star Kirsten Vangsness, Black Lady Sketch Show star Gabrielle Dennis, Westworld actor Gregory Zarian and lifestyle expert Lawrence Zarian and more are taking calls and donations.
Tune in to live telethon on KTLA 5 this Saturday. It will also be streamed live on Hulu from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
